Color Tongue Take You Into Space With "Sprouts"
Psych-Rock group Color Tongue is unique to say the least, and the latest single "Sprouts" proves just that.
The songs begins with a sample of someone saying "I was on the moon, but I'm sure glad to be back Mother!" and some electronic noises that go all over the notation register. After a little over a minute the song finds its groove and takes it away, blasting you off into their curated soundscape (that is nothing short of exotic.) Overall, this track is spacey, unexpected, artistic and something to study, in our opinion. Listen below:
"We wrote it at about this time last year I think. It started off with Eddie finding that sound on his bass synth. It was the first time we had the synth be the backbone of a song. The lyrics are comprised of 2 individual poems me and Eddie had written. The first came from this idea I had of a splinter taking shape of an entire forest or jungle while you sleep and getting caught inside a strange dreamworld in the process. Eddie then wrote the second verse lines about what one might find in there “a brain hung from a chain”. The chorus is from our roommate and visual artist, Will, swirling around on an ottoman in our living room and asking “am I ruining the floor gentleman?”. I thought that was a too good of a line to forget and it somehow ended up in my head when writing the chorus melody. The hypnotic bridge kind of serves as the transition of madness that takes place through this adventure and then ending abruptly with a comedically unexpected bass solo to kick into the final hook. On this track our usual keyboardist, Ray, plays bass and Eddie mans the synthesizer."
